English term or phrase:welfare state
The sentence is: "America, born as a free country, has been transfigured into a welfare state..." Everywhere I've looked up says "estado de bem-estar" but I'm sure the author refers to a country where the government controls people's lives. Is there a term for this in (Brazilian)Portuguese?
